    The euro slightly declined in Asian trade as the dollar advanced ahead of publication of employment data. Investors expect a strong report, which could shift expectations for a Federal Reserve rate increase to an earlier date.

    The Australian dollar sharply advanced against the greenback after the Reserve Bank of Australia left its key interest rate unchanged at 2.0%. RBA Governor Glenn Stevens said that lower interest rates could spur housing price growth, which is already substantial in Sydney and Melbourne, and affect the economy in a negative way in general. This year the RBA has already lowered its benchmark rate twice amid declines in commodity prices and weak inflation. This time the bank reiterated that further cuts are possible in case the economy weakens. Nevertheless recent data showed that business confidence improved and unemployment fell, while it was expected to grow.
